. hey, charles. >> caller: good morning, bill. i just want to -- fema sent trailers down here years ago to be used. fema said you have to take them. florida wanted to give them back to fema to be used. fema said no. they stay where they're at. they were never used. that's one of the examples i think where fema comes into a state telling the state you're taking them. but we don't want them back. now i don't think that's right. i think that they should have been used somewhere else when needed. but fema didn't want them. they go nope. they're your problem. they were parked -- i don't know for how long. i think they finally got them destroyed because they were never used. >> bill: i don't know anything about that, charles but i do know this. that's not the way fema works today. i think you have to look at the way fema works today and the way it has worked since president obama has been in the white house. again, it is not just me saying this there's been nothing but praise for fema and craig if fugate from repu
that he would not answer was about fema. take a listen. >> governor, what should fema's role be? governor, would you eliminate fema if you were president? >> well, it's either 11 or 14 times, depending on whose count you believe. the campaign released a statement saying that romney would not abolish fema but, quote, governor romney believes that states should be in charge of emergency management in responding to storms and other natural disasters in their jurisdiction. that's from his spokesman, ryan williams. is this a problem for him, susan? >> well, i think it becomes an issue for him because of what he said in that primary debate that john king moderated where he was asked specifically about fema. he said anything that the federal government does that can be transferred to the states are better yet to the private sector. that's the right direction. so it leaves open the question of exactly what role he sees for fema. fema has been a controversial agency such as their delivery of services after katrina. however it's pretty popular when it comes in and helps and picks up the costs in th
was running trying to be severely conservatively that he would cut fema funding and send it back to the states and privatize it. this is why it's so important, because it illustrates the importance of government and illustrates the two fundamentally two different choices of the two candidates running for the highest office in land. >> chip, i think we have that sound from the debate. at the time governor romney was asked whether or not with fema and its financial problems if he would cut fema or eliminate fema, and he said it would be up to the states. chuck todd pointed out in a state like florida, fema is very pob lar as is the former governor of that state, jeb bush, because of the help and aid given to people as a result of fema. we know fema has been criticized the in the past, but in large part people need fema in these kinds of crises. when governor romney said at the time he would scrap fema, he mentioned privatizing the aid that would be given in a situation like that, is it fair that this comes up at this point? when would he do in a situation like this when he stated he would not su
on fema. >> -- was about fema. >> fema. >> fema. >> fema. >> take something from the federal government and send it back to the states. >> sending disaster management back to the states. >> that's the right direction >> even the private sector. >> that's even better. >> we should privatize everything including fema. >> that's the right direction. that's the right direction. that's the right direction. that's the right direction. >> what's your view of the proper role of federal government? >> a big storm actually requires some big government. >> federal government will not quit until this is done. >> the president has been outstanding this. the president has been all over this and he deserves great credit. he's been incredibly supportive and helpful to our state and not once did he bring up the election. >> there comes a time when the grown-ups have got to do their jobs. >> if you don't run chris christie, romney will be the nominee and we'll lose. >> we begin tonight with the continuing effort to assess the damage and begin the cleanup from hurricane sandy. president obama traveled to
companies will be embedding a representative with fema in order to better coordinate the response. soledad? >> power outages a big problem here. dan lothian, thanks. john berman's got a look at some of the other stories making news today. >>> police in virginia are looking for the source of three homemade bombs. investigators want to know who set off explosives outside two stafford county homes early tuesday morning. the two incidents have been linked to a third explosion tuesday inside a house in fredricksburg. no injuries were reported. >>> a guilty plea in arizona from a mexican man accused in the 2010 murder of u.s. border patrol agent brian perry. manuel osorio air ranous could be facing life in prison. the 36-year-old man said he got into a gun battle while he and four other armed men were looking for drug traffickers to rob. >>> another california surfer attacked by a shark. the 25-year-old is fighting for his life after he was bitten in his chest and abdomen yesterday. a depp puttpy in eureka saying one of the wounds is a 14 inch gash. other surfers helped pull him out of the water
of the guys who's running isn't. the president has been outstanding in this and so the folks of fema, craig fugate and his folks have been excellent. >> overwhelmingly positive assessment of the president. >> he's not just a romney surrogate, the keynote speaker of the republican convention we saw and just to put it in context, one of the major premise sis of the romney campaign is barack obama came to power promising to bring the country together and, in fact, mitt romney is the guy do that. over this last three, four years, the president for all his efforts to reach out and find some compromise has been cornered into a position where he's been denied republican cooperation. so any endorsement, especially an endorsement at this point, even if it's an endorsement about a natural disaster, from a prominent republican, is really worth every piece of benefit that you can get because it says to independents, be it says to those moderate republicans, maybe this president isn't quite as polarizing as we thought. maybe there is a -- can't get the votes in congress what he wants to do he's not so u
he was at fema headquarters in washington, d.c. talking about the hurricane. let's listen in. >> good afternoon, everybody. obviously all of us across the country are concerned about the potential impact of hurricane sandy. this is a serious and big storm. and my first message is to all people across the eastern seaboard, mid-atlantic going north, you need to take this very seriously. follow the instructions of your state and local officials because they are going to be providing you with the best advice in terms of how to deal with this storm over the coming days. we just had an excellent meeting with the fema team here, the various agencies that are in charge, including the department of defense, department of energy and others that are going to need to respond very quickly. under craig fugate's leadership here at fema, we've had a chance to talk to the region al officials as well, and i had talks with governors of various states as well as other leaders. everyone is confident that the staging process, the pre-positioning of equipment that will be needed to respond to the storm are
population? >> so the challenge for those cities, states, and fema is how to deal with getting whatever necessary help is needed for the elderly and the poor who are not as situated for such a crisis as unusual as this storm is turning out to be? >> right. all these disasters we've watched and they were elderly, disabled, and poor people by themselves. that's the population. much of the talk that has happened so far has dealt with strategy and tactics and risk communications. in the coming hours and days it's going to be about logistics, reverend, al. it's going to be about real people. thereby, the mayors need to encourage their people as soon as the storm passes through is for neighbors to check on neighbors because neighbors will keep more people alive than first responders. with all due respect, the mayors are going to have to keep the streets open so people can take care of one another because there are not enough first responders. the other thing is, get businesses open that have food and water and feed people. get restaurants opened. because people will need that because on the b
coming out against fema. now, this is where i talk about the strange things. it's not just the weather. it's the conjunction of weather and politics. now, not long ago in june we're going to look at a picture now, this is when the republican candidate for president, mitt romney, went on the usual ideological facet people take saying let's get rid of this and let the states handle it. nobody is saying that tonight. >> fema is about to rub out of money. some people say maybe we're learning a lesson that the states should take on more of this role. >> absolutely. every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that's the right direction. and if you can go even further and send it back to the private sector, that's even better. we're borrowing $1.6 trillion more this year than we're taking in. >> including disaster relief. >> we cannot afford to do those things without jeopardizing the future for tour kids. it is simply immoral in my view to rack up larger and larger debts and pass them onto our kids knowing full well we'll all
the effects. hundreds of thousands are now under evacuation orders. fema predicts damage costs of about $3 billion just for wind damage alone. heavy rains or snow, storm surges, widespread flooding across the region depending upon where you live. we're also following a drama unfolding out to sea. a rescue is under way for the crew of the hms bounty, the ship built for the hollywood movie "mutiny on bounty." unbelievable. we'll have more on that es cue in just a minute. let's begin with the first reports of power outages. they're already rolling in. see meteorologist rob marciano is in the iconic new jersey town of asbury park. high, ro hi, rob. can you hear me? >> reporter: i hear you carol. you're right about that. this is a special place. the heyday of the '20s this boardwalk would be bustling. convention center you've seen behind me as gone through a number of boom and bust cycles and resuhr jenr and resuhr jeesurge jenss. the water is over the pylons, the pout -- relentless surf has been pounding this beach. right now we're almost at about high tide. you can see the foam coming up righ
. >> as we know, that help is going out to fema, mobilizing resources to help the governors impacted by sandy and the people in their states. however last year it was during one of the primary debates where governor romney had this to say about what should happen in fema. take a listen. >> fema is about to run out of money and some people who say, you know, maybe we're learning a lesson that the state should take on more. how do you deal with that? >> absolutely, any time you have occasion to send it back from the federal government and send it back to the states and if you can go further and send it back to the private sector. >> the president signed these major disaster declarations for the state of new jersey and new york. they seem to be grateful for the help of fema and the president. wouldn't president romney want to do away with fema and ship those resources back to the states? do we know for sure? >> yea. absolutely. he's not opposed to that by any means. i think what the governor is talking about and we've seen cases in the past is trying to make sure that fema is the most effective
with the fema guys all the time, they're doing everything they want. >> i think that's right. i acknowledge that on the show, bob shrum. i want to go to my friend, ed rogers. >> hey. >> that's when obama was on the beat. first he was in the white house in the oval office. then he traveled. then he walked with chris christie. okay. he was doing his job. now he's back on the campaign trail. i point i'm making, ed rogers, is this. the aftermath, you know, sandy is officially over. whatever that means. but the aftermath has been brutal. much more brutal than people thought. and it extends to almost a third of the country, ed. and somebody often takes the blame who shouldn't take the blame. obama's campaigning. who's taking care of these kids? >> sure. >> in staten island who horribly, tragically, have lost their lives? >> well, you say it's horrible, and in politics, bad gets worse. and natural disasters follow a certain political pattern. at first people want the sheriff and the sheriff has to come to town and restore order and maintain peace and rescue people. now they kind of want the nurse
states with very broad and significant impacts in a number of areas. president obama came down to fema this morning to the national resource coordination center along with several members of the cabinet, myself, secretaries, as well as other senior officials. his message to us was clear and consistent with his message over the past few days, get resources where they are needed as fast as possible without excuses or delays. and that's what we are committed to doing. everyone is leaning forward to support the states, communities and tribes in their response. we've engaged the entire emergency management apparatus of the entire country. that also includes the private sector, the faith based community and many many volunteers. so i'd like to thank all of these partners for their hard work over the last few days. but rest ashured, we are not resting. we are committed to working round the clock to get it done. yesterday the president declared major decasters for connecticut new york and new jersey which makes help available to those in those areas. the designated counties in those states can
hearing a lot about fema and mitt romney's position on fema. yesterday he dodged a lot of questions about it in ohio. >> reporter: yeah, and the obama campaign and other democrats are pointing to comments romney made way back in june of 2011 at a cnn republican presidential debate. take a listen. >> fema is about to run out of money and there are some people who say do it on a case-by-case basis and some people say the state should take on a bigger role. how do you deal with that? >> every time you take something from the federal government you need to send it back to the states. that's the right direction. you can go further and send it back to the private sector, that's even better. >> reporter: john king at that debate back in 2011. yesterday mitt romney at a campaign event converted to a disaster relief event in ohio and was asked by reporters a number of times about what he would do with fema. take a listen to what he said. >> reporter: governor, would you eliminate fema if you were president? >> reporter: what would you do with fema? >> you can see he didn't say much to those questi
. they're offering seven million meals over the next few days through fema, opening 50 shelters around the state and dispatching national guard troops to help people stranded in the storm. the governor's office asking all residents to be very patient, saying this will not be an easy storm to recover from and especially be patient with power still out, saying it could take days, even up to a week for that power to come back on. back to you. >> nbc's janel klein reporting in snowshoe, west virginia. our thanks to jannel and all of our correspondents for their reports. >>> we just got a new photograph of president obama this morning making an unscheduled stop at fema headquarters. the president has made it clear that he wants no red tape when it comes to the government getting what they need to hands the aftermath of the storm, for the government to get to people their needs. the president also visited fema ahead of the storm's landfall with that same message. this reminder, he's leaving for new jersey and the meeting with the governor and mayor of atlantic city in the next hour. we'll br

revenue to the federal government, you've got to go after fema, which actually fema's not driving us into debt, look at the numbers. you've got to go after big bird, big bird's not driving us into debt, go after -- >> not going after the firefighters -- >> you've got to go where the money is. you rob the banks because that's where the money is. if you want to save america, you have to go where the money is. that's health care, that's medicare, medicaid, social security. you've got to reform them in a way. and i'm not saying voucher systems, this is about math. you've got to reform them in a way that would save those systems, save this country. and then you got to go after defense spending. fema, come on. this is ridiculous. really? seriously? we want delaware governor, new jersey's governor fighting -- no. you need the federal government to step in and help coordinate. i've been in the middle of these calls. >> yeah. >> when you have killer storms coming toward the coastline. i've been in the middle of these calls, and let me tell you something, you've got to have somebody out of was
things are stable and who is going to pay for the damage repairs. that is dealing with fema on a presidentially declared disaster like this. the insurance company is the first to pay but they can be reimbursed by the federal government depending on what kind of damage you have and what you are eligible for. >> how long does it take? >> often times it takes weeks or a month or so to work with fema to figure out what is covered and what is not. >> if your house is flooded you have to wait until the insurance conductor comes out to assess before you can start to rebuild? >> usually within 72-hours you will get the visit from the fema inspector and insurance adjust tore. you figure out who is paying for what to make sure you are covered to see who your contact will be. >> do you recommend that they rebuild their house get the water out? where do they do? what do they do? >> water is the biggest problem. the longer water stays in your house the most chance you have to have mold and those kind of problems. get any wet materials out of the house and make sure mold is not setting in
new jersey in surveying the damage. that is where government works, fema, a program governor romney called for eliminating during the republican debate -- guest: not all, absolutely false. -- governor romney said that -- he talked about not funding in -- guest: governor romney said that, talk about not funding it. only government has the opportunity to provide those services certainly in an emergency like this. fema has to respond immediately. you saw the first responders -- police, fire, the municipal services that have to respond so quickly and so well. our hearts and thoughts go out to those affected communities and the president is responding quickly. he will get back on to the campaign trail on saturday in the commonwealth. let's go back to a lot of what barbour had to say in her presentation. went for barack obama was because they were responding to the bush presidency. during the bush presidency he took eight surplus from a year 2000 with -- took a surplus from the year 2000 and turned it into deficit by imposing the bush tax including millionaires. what governor romney is pr

better than anybody about fema and about the red cross. is he going to tell us about that at the bottom of the hour. in the meantime three days before we do the final voting, election day just three days away, the candidates are out in the battleground states. we're going to talk about that one thing that the obama campaign has not talked about, even though members of fox news team have tried to get him on the record, mr. president, what did you know about what happened in benghazi, libya on september the 11th, 2012? people aren't asking that. we're asking. we're not getting any answers. but today we have got another smoking gun because the white house before had said, you know, we didn't really have any real warnings of trouble there another smoking gun. more warnings. >> gretchen: apparently they even talked to suspending operations completely at the consulate. you know there were two locations in benghazi. hut consulate and then you had the cia operation house which people, i guess, didn't know was a cia operation house which is about a mile away. and they were talking and in the day

management agency, fema, has already deployed teams and pre-staged resources to potentially affected states and fema is in close contact with states up and down the east coast, to make sure there are no unmet needs. one concern for both campaigns is that the storm could hinder early voting in ohio, north carolina and virginia. one democratic senator said this about the impact on the president's campaign. >> the storm will throw havoc into the race. i was supposed to be with the president special president clinton on monday. that rally has been cancelled. but i think that virginia is ready to go to the polls and i think the president will carry virginia. >> reporter: due to the upcoming storm, governor romney cancelled evens in virginia. instead, he will link up with his vice-presidential runningmate in ohio and the two of them will campaign in that key state. one romney supporter, former house speaker newt gingrich had sharp words for the president over his campaigning scheduling choices over the consulate in libbia, compared to today. >> you notice, he is canceling his treps over the hurri
